Back in the late 90’s, Tim Westwood’s show on Radio was my primary source for new hiphop.
He would often have guests on and regularly broadcast from live events. Because of this, I got into the habit of keeping blank tapes on standby. One summer’s evening in August 1997, I remember rushing home to catch the show. I turned on the radio and instantly reached for a tape as it was KRS ONE performing at a live gig. Turned out he was in the studio with Tim and they were reminiscing listening to old live shows. The interview started light hearted and jovial but the mood shifted when KRS began to question his and Tim’s friendship and the agenda of mainstream media.
This tape became like an album to me. I listened to over and over again. I thought I had lost it but here it is! Sorry about the variable audio but it makes a good listen. Enjoy!
